  • Editors Calgary (2021, 2022)


I am the owner and lead editor of Bookmarten Editorial, where I work with my editing team to empower authors, create connection, and impact readers. We work for independent authors of fantasy and romance, with a focus on stories with queer representation.

I love working on stories because I believe in the power of words. Stories can change lives and create magic.

In my spare time, I devour as many books as I can; my latest reads and reviews are on my Instagram. I also love travelling and baking, and part of my heart resides in Scotland, where I completed my university degree. I live in Calgary, Alberta with my game-loving husband and our adorable fur-baby.
